Thank you Blank, that is some good info.

Here is another thought I had today regarding my DIY welder and in light of Blank's voltage info may make more sense. What if I made like six small transformers then wired them to together, it would allow scalability and some adjustment, by adding or removing a transformer from the circuit. What is the math for combining transformers in series/paralell? And what about the secondary winding series/paralell? and can different transformer sizes be wired together, or do they all need to be fairly close in size? My understanding is that the primary coils need to be fairly equal, but secondaries can vary with no problem. Any electrical engineers wanna she some light?
